AutoCAD has a command called ISOPLANE which allows you to easily draw at a 30 degree angle as needed for an isometric drawing. You can switch between the three ‘isoplanes’ (top, right, left) by using this command or by pressing the F5 key. Newer versions of AutoCAD have an Isoplane icon on the status bar.

What are the 3 views of isometric drawing?
As a rule, they show an object from three different views (Usually the Front, Top, & Right Side). Each of the views are drawn in 2-D (two dimensional) , and have dimensions labeling the length, width, and height of the object.
What are the examples of isometric drawing?
Solved Examples for You
Solution: Technically the Isometric projection is the two-dimensional representation for viewing a 3-D object with the three primary lines, which are equally tilted away from the viewer. Thus an example of isometric projection is the technical drawing of a house or building.
Is it possible to give exact dimensions to isometric circles?
Draw the grid in isometric using a 30 degree set square, being careful to use the same measurements as the original grid which surrounds the circle. 4. To draw the circle in isometric projection simply measure each distance down each vertical line on the normal grid and transfer it to the isometric grid.
What are the function keys use in AutoCAD?
Function Key Reference
|F3||Object snap||Turns object snap on and off.|
|F4||3D object snap||Turns additional object snaps for 3D on and off.|

What is the command used to toggle between isometric planes?
Switch Between Isometric Planes
At the Command prompt, enter ISOPLANE and choose Left, Top, or Right.
How do I convert 2D to 3D in AutoCAD?
Use AutoCAD’s “Extrude” and “Revolve” commands to turn 2-D designs into 3-D models. “Extrude” is how 3-D modelers to refer to the technique of stretching a 2-D shape into 3-D space. AutoCAD performs this expansion by first extending a new axis at right angles to the 2-D axes on which your 2-D design sits.
